I love the ice cream here, this is my favorite ice cream shack. It is seasonal, so you have to stop here before it closes in the fall! I always get the soft cone vanilla chocolate twist.

On Sunday night July 28, 2013 I took my two granddaughters to Massey’s Frozen Custard. The 10-year old said the 2-scoops of strawberry hand dip custard was excellent. The 8-year old said the 2-scoops of cookie dough hand dip custard was average. The bill was $5. They ate on a bench in front of the store.

A classic ice cream shop that serves frozen custard. Always very busy because it is very good! I love the hand dip homemade custard.

We stopped in after dinner. The staff was very friendly. They had a selection of sugar free ice cream which many ice cream places do not have. It was more than just plain vanilla. The ice cream was very good!

I stopped for gas in Carlisle on a long road trip. I was cross-eyed with Interstate ennui, so I rode through town, The old-fashioned look of Massey's appealed to me, and a quick check on tripadvisor's mobile app told me it had good ratings, so I treated myself to a small soft-serve. I love this sort of place, and the... More

Massey's was just taken over by new owners. It was good before but now it is phenomenal. They have different flavors of the day and they post them on their Facebook page! Last night we skipped dinner and has ice cream instead! We got Fluffer nutter and Maple bacon. Yes, it had real bacon pieces in the ice cream. Go... More

I grew up in Carlisle, and Massey's was the spot to get your sweet tooth fix in the summer. Since then, they’ve opened to full season hours, with longer hours, and still keeping that good Ice Cream & Custard consistency. I love their artic mounts, homemade soft serve custard, and of course, their original custard. All of them are excellent!... More

There are several "bad" days every year. The last day of baseball season. tax day, and the day Massey's closes. Thank goodness they're "down time" is getting shortly. There is such a thing as Massey's withdrawal. Still serving the same "hand dipped" chocolate that's been there since I was a kid, and that's a long time ago. It's one of... More

A little expensive, but tasty and a historic Carlisle spot for some old fashioned ice cream. When the weather is nice, it's fun to enjoy a cone while sitting on the curb or under a tree.

I have to admit that I have been spoiled by very very good frozen custard. My first purchase, I realized I couldn't tell by tasting if I had ordered chocolate or vanilla. I like the tables in the shade.
